The bone spur in Cheif. And there isn't a peep from the peanut gallery except if Trump was a Democrat such an offence and he/she would have been regarded as coward and traitor. The question begged is when is he going to pack up and go???

What I love about our conservative friends is how they don't seem to be able to remember their own behavior even though it was literally just a few years ago. Cons continually moan and grown about how liberals won't play nice when, just as our country was struggling to come out of a deep recession, the republican house and senate blocked everything coming from the white house even if it was something that would have benefited the country.

Now keep in mind that Republicans love to strut around and throw out their chests and claim just how much they love our country but would anyone who loved this country go out of their way to block legislation that would benefit it? And of course, if Republicans had voted on legislation proposed by Obama, the wonder that conservatives are, they would have called them RINO's and worked to get them out of office. So who is really the traitors to this country--Republican representatives or conservatives themselves?

90% of those mentioned will side with freedom loving Americans, not a tyrannical government. Sorry to disappoint you.

So when the asshole shot up the Walmart why didn't 90% of the police side with him? What you guys aren't taking into consideration is that to protect your guns you are going to have to attack something or someplace and when you do how are the police going to know that you are the good guys with a gun and not the bad guys? And something else you aren't considering is that when polled the majority of the police want semi-auto's banned because they are tired of going up against assholes with semi-automatic weapons.

So go ahead and start your silly little war and see what it gets you because the police won't be able to tell the difference between a "freedom-loving" patriot and just a regular right-wing terrorist.

Automatic firearms ("assault weapons") were prohibited for civilian purchase by the National Firearms Act of 1934. One must hold a valid Class 3 FFL to purchase and shoot a Class 3 firearm. Semi auto firearms, including the AR15, ARE NOT classified as Class 3 firearms (assault weapons).

The upper two photos show semi-auto rifles. Both are chambered for .223 or 5.56mm x45 NATO ammunition. Both can be loaded with magazines with a 5, 10, 20 or 30 round capacity. Both are approximately the same length and weight.

The bottom photo is the semi-automatic civilian version of the AK47. Chambered for 7.62mm x 39 ammunition.

This is why the ban should be on all semi-automatic weapons to put aside all unnecessary bickering over what is and isn't an assault weapon.

The fight by the hard right, and I say hard right, is that anything is a slippery slope. They object to anything and everything...that is going down like a porn star fluffer. Moderate republicans, and there are a lot of them agree with the middle of the road, background checks that include police reports, mental health, histories of violence and anger issues.

So the dialog is about what is reasonable, if you are part of the pure opposition that fights against everything you will not have a voice, this will be done without you.

The ground that needs to be discussed are the things that can make differences, it isn't about anything being able to completely eliminate mass murders, it's about the things that can make a difference.

Background checks along with a wait period sufficient to check databases, that's the common sense ground that is being reported as having support out at as high as 90%. Ground for debate exists with what does background checks include... Those databases should include...
...police reporting of domestic violence reports, restraining orders, and general red flag behavior

Red flag laws, which allow the police and FBI to intervene when unhinged behavior and threats are reported or detected on social media.

Magazine size limits, they actually are effective in that they make it harder to carry larger numbers of mags that have only ten shots in them. Their effectiveness is curtailed whe they are limited in some states but not others. Everyone I know that wants 20/30/and even 40 round mags has them because it's easy enough to get them in Nevada.

I am a gun owner, I recently bought an AR in a tiny caliber (.204 Ruger) for coyote and target shooting. I am against people being forced to give up an array of assault oriented rifles, I favor the approach California took when they banned assault rifles It banned new ones. It was later relaxed to a standard of safety features and magazine size limits, also better than a forced taking of all of them, that is a line too far. I oppose total bans and prefer allowing the modified ARs that are available in california, although total bans are what they are as long as they don't come with being forced to turn in existing ones, mine is a custom super accurate one that cost $2500. California did not try to take people's AR's when they banned them, they grandfathered in the ones people already owned.

The right rants on about the government wanting to take our guns, it's not all of them so that is a fear mongering rhetoric. The country has a long history of having bans on different military grade weapons, also things such as fully automatic and suppressors, which are prohibited in many states.

Rather than talking about the negative and what you are afraid is a slippery slope, talk about what is reasonable and acceptable to you. I'm curious how many people on the right will say what's acceptable, although I know that to say so is to be labeled by the hard right as a traitor.
The fight by the hard right, and I say hard right,... (show quote)

Fox News found that two-thirds of Americans favored a ban on semi-automatic weapons. What's "sensible" changes with each shooting. As for people on the right, we are a democracy and rights aren't a one-way street. When the second amendment was written the intent was to have a Well-Regulated Militia to protect the country in place of a free-standing army.

Well, there isn't a conservative in this country that would favor a reduction to the military so the question begged is how can someone with an AR-15 stand up against a police force and military trained in the use of automatic weapons, drones, and explosives. Cons wouldn't stand a chance if they attacked our government and because of that, the second amendment is largely negated. We are following a fossil that is being misinterpreted solely to allow the misguided amongst us to play Rambo when doing so would get their asses shot off!

We didn't find out the first time that he did nothing wrong. There were 10 instances of obstruction of justice. Clinton only had one instance when you cons impeached him.

I have been on this site for many years and all I heard for the last 6 years years is the right wing on OPP bitch about how much golf Obama was playing.

Trump during his campaign at his Nazi rallies would send his supporters into a frenzy when he told the American people I will not have time to play golf like Obama has, I will be to busy running this country. ( HIS BASE WENT WILD WITH APPLAUSE)

So let’s take a look and the facts are in based on Trumps first 2 years and 91 days of comparing Trump golf versus Obama golf. (UNLIKE OBAMA WHEN TRUMP SUPPORTERS BITCHED FOR YEARS ITS NOTHING BUT CRICKETS NOW)

Based on Obama and Trump during the first two years and 91 days.

Trump has played 2.6 times more than Obama and Trump has cost the federal tax payer $97 million which Trump has profited from a lot of it. WE WILL GET INTO GOLF RESORT EXPENDITURES ON A NEW TOPIC I AM RESEARCHING IT NOW)

Keep in mind this is based on the first 2 years and 91 days.

Trump has spent 170 days playing golf versus 65 days for Obama. Trump is expected to play golf at least 302 times in his first term. That’s almost more than Obama in 8 years.

Trump played golf 98% of the time at his privately owned golf courses. Obama played and greatly preferred Andrews Air Force Base a limo ride from the White House 58% of the time. While Trump had to fire up The Helicopter and Air Force One load up his Security people and staff. Trump profited from room rentals and food for his staff and security force. Trumps golf courses alone charged over $300,000 just for golf carts.

Trumps favorite courses were a tie between Trump International and Trump National Bedminster. Obama’s was Andrews Air Force Base.

Trumps cost over the first 2 years and 91 days cost the American tax payers $97,000,000 President Obama was $23,000,000.

where he goes deeper into what the framers had decided for our country and Countrymen and Women.
Semper Fi

So how are a people who are armed with semi-automatic weapons supposed to combat a police force and military that is armed with automatic weapons, bombs and explosives, drones, aircraft, a navy, etc, etc? What was the framers intent there?

I am in favor of this in part. It should be available to all women at all times and not tax payer supported.

I don't believe in abortion. I believe these chemical solutions are primarily there to prevent a possible fertilized egg from implanting in the womb. Women's choice if you will. She is choosing to not accept this, if it even exists, and she has no knowledge that it does. This is different from taking a pregnancy test and finding out she is pregnant and then voluntarily, knowingly killing a human life.

While I don't believe in abortion, if a state allows it, it should only be through chemical methods that in effect cause a miscarriage or induced labor. Ripping a baby apart in the womb in mid term abortions is absolutely barbaric and should be totally banned. Other late term abortions that that require killing a baby before induced labor is also barbaric and occasionally results in live births were babies are just left to die in a bucket. Also barbaric.

How is a miscarriage any different than an abortion? Both end in the termination of a pregnancy.
